Beach nourishment work has been completed in Kill Devil Hills and the contractor is now moving equipment and beginning work in Kitty Hawk.
The dredge has left the construction site for maintenance and inspections and is scheduled to return the first week of August, according to an email Friday from the Town of Kitty Hawk.
In anticipation of the dredge’s return, equipment is being moved to the subline pipe just north of White Street in the 3700 block of North Virginia Dare Trail.
This equipment is stored near the dune and is fenced off to the public.
There is access in front of the fenced area and beachgoers can walk in front of the restricted area near the ocean.
Next week, the contractor is planning to add approximately 700 feet of pipe to the current subline north of White Street.
In addition, they are planning to move the subline pipe currently in Kill Devil Hills to the second subline pipe site in Kitty Hawk.
This subline will be located near Balchen Street.
